Arquillian Drone Extension 1.0.0.CR3 Released

Since we wrote this post we didn't laze around. Check our latest announcement.

The Arquillian team is proud to announce the 1.0.0.CR3 release of the Arquillian Drone Extension component!

Some of the highlights in this release

Upgraded underlying Selenium to 2.13.0

Fixed cleanup for method scoped browsers

Improved WebDriver configuration, now you’re able to switch between browser implementations using arquillian.xml configuration only:

@Drone WebDriver driver;
<property name="implementationClass">

now behaves the same way as:

@Drone FirefoxDriver driver;

What is Arquillian?

Arquillian is open source software that empowers you to test JVM-based applications more effectively. Created to defend the software galaxy from bugs, Arquillian brings your test to the runtime so you can focus on testing your application's behavior rather than managing the runtime. Using Arquillian, you can develop a comprehensive suite of tests from the convenience of your IDE and run them in any IDE, build tool or continuous integration environment.
